College of Arts and Sciences 

The tremendous increase in numbers of college age Americans seeking 
a higher education is one of the great challenges facing the United States 
in the next decode. While the establishment of Florida Presbyterian College 
will perform a service in meeting this demand for quantity, the primary 
orientation of this institution is to meet the imperative need for a truly 
quality education in order to meet the fabulous foreseeable and the unknown 
future facing the American people. 

Florida Presbyterian College recognizes that an education at any insti- 
tution of higher learning is largely dependent upon what the student wishes 
to make of it. It shall be a basic tenet of this college, however, that a 
quality education implies far more than an opportunity to acquire new infor- 
mation. The vocation of a student should be inspired and encouraged by, in 
Newman's words, "living teaching". No effort in teaching is too great if 
it arouses a life-long curiosity and respect for things of the mind and spirit, 
and instills a continuing drive for excellence. These are the characteristics 
that Florida Presbyterian College will attempt to develop in its students.

Notes 23 


The courses of instruction to be offered at Florida Presbyterian College 
are described in this publication. The particular number of each course 
conveys the following information: 

The two digits to the left of the decimal point (11.3) identify the course. 

The first digit of the two digits to the left of the decimal point (11.3) 
designates the course level — 1 and 2 as freshman and sophomore level 
courses, typically, and 3 and 4 as junior and senior courses. 

The digit to the right of the decimal point (1 1 .3) indicates course credit 
in terms of semester hours. For continuous courses of two semesters this 
digit designates credit for each semester's work. 

The letter a following the digit to the right of the decimal (11.3a) 
indicates that the course will be offered beginning in 1961-62 or 1963-64 
and alternate years; b indicates that it will be offered beginning in 1962-63 
or 1964-65 and alternate years. The absence of a or b signifies that the 
course is taught each year. 

The symbols I or II following the course title indicate the semester in 
which a course is offered. When both I and II appear, it signifies that the 
course is continuous for two semesters; however, in no such case is credit for 
the first semester of the course contingent on the taking of the second 
semester of that course. 

Before students enroll in any course they are encouraged to check the 
pre-requisites of a course and, if necessary, seek the advice of their faculty 
advisers. In general, courses at the 1 1 level are pre-requisite to 21 level 
courses and 21 level courses to most advanced courses. (The next publication 
of the Courses of Instruction will indicate specific requirements for the ad- 
vanced courses.) 

Near the close of the school year each freshman is expected to prepare 
a tentative course program for the remaining three years of college and to 
present it to his or her adviser for critical evaluation and counsel. At the 
end of the second year of study each student must submit for approval to 
the Committee on Academic Review his or her program as planned insofar 
as an intended major field of study and further elective courses are con- 
cerned. Revisions in a student's program can be made at any time thereafter 
providing the approval of a major professor is given. 

Most of the courses are listed according to academic divisions and 
academic disciplines or fields of study within each division. Listed separately 
are the inter-disciplinary courses, i.e., those taught jointly by members of 
several fields or areas of knowledge. Courses are conducted typically on the 
basis of three lecture-discussion periods per week supplemented by "X" 
periods, studios or laboratories. 

It should be noted that course descriptions are not given for the Junior 
General Seminars and Senior Advanced Seminars included among the course 
offering in each area in which a major is offered. The reason is that a pro- 
fessor is free to vary his offerings each year according to student interest 
and his own study and research. It should be further noted that students 
receiving the endorsement of the professors in their major field may take 
the equivalent of two courses each semester during their senior year in a 
program of guided independent research and in lieu of the senior seminar 
each semester. 

The course program presented herein was designed by leading scholars 
from colleges and universities throughout the country at several major 
curriculum conferences.
